in dealing with iraq and afghanistan? if you are not satisfied, what you think president obama should consider in a way of changes? >> i am not satisfied. as a libertarian, i seek a world at peace with other nations. i look to thomas jefferson's quotation for inspiration. peace, converse -- commerce, -- america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum board is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- including iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us

president bush. he was in the white house during the 9/11 attacks and the beginning of the world iraq. it's great to have you back here today or i would like to get your perspective on what we're seeing today. >> well, this is a terrible time for the folks in the white house. as well as the intelligence communities and the defense department. my heart and prayers are with them as they make tough decisions. the president's primary responsibility is to protect americans and to make sure america's national security interests are upheld. we also have to remember that we need strong leadership. president obama should be providing strong leadership filled with resolve. he should have the patience of diplomacy, it is very important right now. our diplomats have to be practicing tough diplomacy. this is a time when we and we have to count on our allies standing tall with us. as president bush said, you are either with us or against us. that was a very important message to send around the world. we hope that president obama is sending a similar message. you have to stand with america. we are not a
300 in iraq. the bombing started yesterday after a judge sentenced iraq's fugitive sunni vice president to death by hanging on charges he masterminded the death squads against rivals. the car bombs tore through six different baghdad neighborhoods. this was one of the deadliest days in iraq since american soldiers pulled out of that country. >>> prince harry's helicopter training in afghanistan starts today. the prince recently arrived there for his second tour of duty. officials say harry did not want any royal treatment during the mission. he'll be inasmuch danger as almost any other member of the military. he's already completed a two-day course on shooting and roadside bomb awareness. his last mission was back in 2008. it was kept a secret because of security concerns. >>> the faa still trying to figure out how a piece of an airplane landed in a man's front yard in washington state. police say a landing gear door from a boeing 767 landed in thy. that piece is roughly the size of a refrigerator door, and it missed a parked car by just a few feet. luckily, nobody was hurt whe

those prisoners at gitmo and to rehabilitate them. but we have seen instances, both in iraq and afghanistan, and for that matter pakistan, where former detain s have been involved in planning and executing attacks against americans abroad. >> on the issue of -- with libya today, it is stunning the lack of coordination between the intelligence community and the state department. >> what do we know? we know it was a terror attack. it was planned two or three days in advance. we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we know our ambassador was tortured now before he was killed. >> what we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm u.s. interests or -- well, we don't know yet. we are going to continue to investigate this. >> it wasn't the video. >> our ambassador was tortured before he was murdered. no leadership whatsoever. i don't think barack obama is capable of leadership. he's capable of mesmerizing, but he's not capable of leadership. >> so what's up? wh
soldier in iraq. the soldier was born in oklahoma to welsh mother and u.s. navy father read his parents fell in love. his father was stationed at the u.s. military base in wales. the soldier showed early promise as a boy, winning top prizes at science fairs three years in a row. he believed in the truth. like all of us, he hated hypocrisy. he believed in the party and the right for all of us to pursue happiness. he believed in the values that founded an independent united states. he believes and medicine, justice, and pain. like many teenagers, he was unsure what to do with his life. he knew he wanted to defend his country. he knew he wanted to learn about the world. he entered the u.s. military, and like his father, trained as an intelligence analyst. in late 2009, age 21, he was deployed to iraq. there, it is alleged, he sought u.s. military that did not often follow the rule of law and she sought u.s. military that did not often follow the rule of law. it is alleged it was there in baghdad in 2010 that he gave to wikileaks, gave to me, and alleged he gave to the world details that ex

hard to get this dofnlt i hope we can confirm our ambassadors to iraq and afghanistan, and the continuing resolution to fund the government for six months. republicans say this congress has been unproductive. but if republicans want to know why it's been unproductive, they should take a look in the mirror. benjamin franklin once said, "well-done is better than well-said." close quote. "well-done is better and well-said." so it is time republicans stopped talking about how much they wanted to get things done and started working with us to actually get things done. the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: yesterday dozens of republican senators came to the senate floor one after the other to register their complete frustration with the way democrats are running this place. never before -- never -- have a president and a majority party in the senate done so little to address challenges as great as the ones our nation faces right now. never. i mean, we've got a $16 trillion debt, and they haven't bothered to put together a budget in three years. they ha

think about the war in iraq. where did most of the anti-u.s. soldiers and militants come from? they came from benghazi. it is not like we didn't know there is it a problem >> look. every country in the region has a radical islamic movement that is operating inside of it. and they move fighters around you they make no mistake about it and final question. have we gained anything by our involvement in the middle east? should we change our strategy. and like any president wouldn't. given what is happening to us. and our policy now is unstate we saw it unfold over the last three plus years we are disengaging from the middle east. our friends say why aren't you standing here with us. look at iran. permitting them to have a nuclear weapon and we have a feckless policy that is not standing up to them and we are pulling out of iraq despite the recommendation and turn it over to iranian influence and time table in afghanistan as well >> thank you so much. and are we angry enough over the violence in the middle east? ambassador bolton next and finding justice for four americans killed in [ male ann
, but we have made some very clear red lines there. >> people will say this is very reminiscent of iraq. you have a bad guy who is believed to be in the process of either developing or has wmd. we know what happened with iraq, that that intelligence was flawed. can america, can the world, risk another flawed military action if it turns out ahmadinejad is actually telling the truth? >> first of all, it's very different from iraq. i personally never saw any intelligence that was at all persuasive on the nuclear issue. i wanted the inspectors to go in there for a simple reason. when the first gulf war was over, we began an accounting of all of saddam's weapons of mass destruction, which mostly consisted of chemical warheads and chemical and biological agents. in 1998, when he kicked the inspectors out, there were two biological agents and two chemical agents, a substantial quantity unaccounted for. we bombed, the u.s. and uk. after 9/11, i thought it was important for the inspectors to go in, try to find out whether we had destroyed that or not. we later learned when he was deposed that it
is well and thriving in some places including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more of those kinds of people coming in, including mali and including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this on space was a result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to use, senator. you've never shied away from using strong words. >> i never have. >> how can you say that you know -- >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars and heavy weapons. >> is libya awash -- >> anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's how, nora. >> as you know -- is libya awash with weapons? >> yes, it is. >> what susan wright said over a number of the shows over the weekend that i know you criticized. >> i was on just after her so i know what she said she said they had no evidence that it was a spontaneous demonstration. how can you say that when mortar and heavy weapons are used and it's a result of a spontaneous dem

the compound's main gate. protests have also occurred in other countries including egypt, iraq, iran, tunisia, and bangladesh as well as the gaza strip. in cairo, at least 13 demonstrators were injured today outside the u.s. embassy. police reportedly used tear gas to disperse the protesters after they threw stones and molotov cocktails. the protests follow tuesday night's storming of the was consulate in the libyan city of benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three staffers dead. on wednesday, president obama vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the killings, which he said would not repeat ties between u.s. and libya. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. the world must stand at a to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already, many libyans have joined us in doing so. this attack will not break the bonds between u.s. and libya. >> the obama administration has dispatched an elite group of marines to the libyan capital of tripoli and six u
.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. more than 100 people were killed in iraq on sunday and one of the country's deadliest days this year. a series of bombings hit baghdad shortly after fugitive iraqi vice president was sentenced to death for allegedly planning and funding attacks in iraq. a leading sunni muslim politician, he fled baghdad in december when iraq's shia-led government accused him of running death squads. he has denied the charges, saying they're politically motivated. the controversy has sparked fears of worsening the sectarian turmoil between shiites and sunnis. in sunday's worst attack, more than 50 people were killed when a bomb struck a crowded commercial area. the u.s. has formally handed control of the bagram air base to the afghan government and a key milestone for the more than a decade-long a to occupation. but despite the handover, the u.s. is continuing to contain control over several dozen prisoners in a dispute the afghan government. "the new york times" reports the spat apparently centers on afghan refusals to adopt the no- trial detention system dem
states. there are patriots who oppose the war in iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in iraq. we are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the united states of america. >> wow. you know, governor, i'll call you bill, known you forever, i was with a crowd, african-american crowd in a tough neighborhood north philly before the election in 2008, it's a tough crowd, tough neighborhood. they needed a lot of things they aren't getting there, all right. a lot of poverty. the biggest applause line from candidate obama, i'm going to bring this country together. that's what people got teary eyed over. i hear it here, feel it here, it's still what the country wants. they don't want to be minorities against majorities, straight against black, they want a united country. can this president still do it? >> he can still do it. he's going to do it. what you're seeing now again is that coalition coming together. brian and i are from the west. the president virtually won most of the western states. he won new mexico, he won colorado, ne
, iraq and tan stan and elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow had mistreated the muslim which was the premise of his speech and how the iraq war inflamed the world and there was no storming of the u.s. embassy. >> gretchen: if you have an outreach to muslim, you done have an outreach to the terrorist faction of muslims. i don't think anything works with that faction of muslim. >> eric: that speech had a lot of apologies in it. charles points out. he first three-quarters of the way of the speech. he said we handled post 9/11 improperly apologized for the iraq war and default apologized for george bush. that was the first peach he made off domestic soil and. kind of kicked off the continued apology tour we talked about? >> brian: we should not curve our free speech because the muslim world doesn't understand what they are doing. we have joints of staff calling crazy people in florida . really? we have to wooch what we are saying. we can't be responsible for the people in our borders. you think we want to be held for everybody in this country? and watch what we speak because the
to this new article, cheney continued to argue that we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he kept saying that's not what we ought to be doing. we ought to be attacking iraq. so what did you make of that looking at it. of course, he was always the intelligence guy in the white house. he was between bush and the cia gu guys. he was using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role? >> cheney was instrumental and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by an ideal logical agenda that was based around gettiget i saddam hussein and that movement. considered the unfinished work from 1991 to go in and get saddam hussein. so they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was here in these warnings. and at best in curious about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleeza rice, who i like personally. but she's saying something i'm afraid that's going to be on her record book. she's testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush about the li
is increasingly become a forum for a sectarian war. it is to destabilize libya, iraq, jordan and even turkey, and runs the risk of sectarian warfare that engulfs the middle east. it is urgent, it is serious, and the administration does not seem to have a policy that is commensurate with the seriousness of the problem and the repetitive events. and iran continues to move toward a nuclear weapon, and we seem to spend more time putting pressure on israel not to strike iran than figuring out what he with are going to do about iran. think i it's a troubling time. it's a middle east that's in meltdown and our policies seem to be in some sense frozen. the administration talks about how they have more time. i think we are running out of time, and i'm worried about it. >> how do we unwind ourselves out of this situation? no matter why it happened, we now have this situation and it is a crisis. what do we do? >> one of the things we don't do, we don't pull out. because these people who are demonstrating against us, that's exactly what they want to do. they want us to pull out and clear the space for t
